Pumex Computing’s project management structure allows us to place the most skilled development team and project manager with the programming expertise your software requires. Whether your development team is working here or abroad; you will always have a direct point of contact in the US to help resolve any issues, facilitate change processes, and keep you up to date on the project’s progress.
In addition to having dedicated project managers and technical leads, each customer will have a back office portal that they can use to stay updated on the development life cycle. The back office allows our customers to track their project from inception to final delivery and communicate effectively with their Project Manager and technical leads.
Our Project Management and Development Process speak for themselves. While we are flexible in how we pursue the development of your software, whether we utilize a Waterfall Approach or a more Agile Development method. We find the best approach often lies in between the two ideas. Each approach has its pros and cons to the development process and Pumex Computing finds that taking concepts from both philosophies allows us to create superior software. Our Development Lifecycle is as follows:
Pumex believes the most efficient method is to combine the best of both the waterfall development method and agile development process, where the final deliverable has gone through multiple client reviews and three phases of product release to the client. This allows Pumex the ability to retain flexibility in the functionality, look & feel of the final product, while maintaining strict controls on timetables and product deliverables. The customer is able to provide a high level of feedback and input into the development process and final result, while controlling overall costs and time to market development cycles.
While the above method is the preferred process for Pumex developed projects. This model may vary greatly in the event an external or internal team augmentation model is utilized. In those situations, moving to either extreme of the Waterfall Development Process or Agile Development Process may make more sense for the project.
